The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA)

MISSION STATEMENT

OUR MISSION IS TO STRENGTHEN THE IMPACT OF AMERICAN FASHION IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY

 

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA)

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA) is a not-for-profit trade association founded in 1962, whose membership consists of 477 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessory designers.

The mission of the CFDA is to strengthen the impact of American fashion in the global economy.

The CFDA Foundation, Inc. is a separate not-for-profit organization, which was created to raise funds for charity and industry activities.

In addition to hosting the annual CFDA Fashion Awards, the trade organization owns the Fashion Calendar.

 

“The CFDA Fashion Awards

“The CFDA Fashion Awards celebrate the best in American creativity and global style, and this year will be no different,” CFDA CEO Steven Kolb said. “We are particularly excited to be partnering with Amazon Fashion, a global retailer and innovative brand builder with a continuous focus on reinventing the shopping experience, to celebrate this special occasion at Cipriani South Street at Casa Cipriani with our special CFDA member co-hosts.”

 

The Founder Eleanor Lamber

Eleanor Lambert believed in destiny — her own destiny – predicted by a fortuneteller – that she would live a long life and know the greatest and most talented people of her era.

Miss Eleanor Lambert also believed in the destiny of American fashion and for that, she needed no fortuneteller.

Eleanor Lambert lived to be 100 years old and she spent more than 70 of those years tirelessly creating the institutions, the legends and the spectacular events that put American fashion on the map and changed the way the whole world views and experiences fashion.

She was uniquely qualified for the job – coming from the world of art in the 1920s and 1930s – representing American artists who were considered on par with their European counterparts. Ironically, convincing American fashion editors would prove to be the hardest job of all!
